The Stairway by Debi Gardiner



David Edwards

We do
not know what the
even immediate
future holds-- sleep being infant
of death.
Why shudder we at
the sight of a corpse? Why fear
what we must become?
Some winter hence the
frozen earth will shift and break
the casket seal, and
our long-forgotten remains
the grass of Spring next reveal.
